‘Death by Chocolate’ looking for more participants

Shrewsbury – The Second Annual Death by Chocolate fundraiser is scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Cyprian Keyes in Boylston. So far, The Bean Counter, CocoBeni Confections, Shrewsbury Girl Scouts, Struck Catering and Sugar Rush Cupcakes will be participating in this fun family event. Once again, local businesses and nonprofit groups will vie for the opportunity to be voted as the best in one of five categories:  Best Chocolate Cake; Best Chocolate Brownie; Best Chocolate Cookie; Best Chocolate Candy; and Best Unique Chocolate Dessert.

Death by Chocolate is the major fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Shrewsbury and 50 percent of the proceeds will go directly to Dean Park Playground for improvements to the playground equipment used by children throughout the community. Any remaining proceeds will benefit Rotary-sponsored programs, including Second-Grade Literacy Day, senior citizen community dinners, NICVIEW web cameras for UMass neonatal intensive care, St. Anne’s milk program, high school scholarships, and Shrewsbury Youth/Family Services. More “chocolate chefs” are encouraged to sign up.

To sponsor a company, a nonprofit group, or an individual, contact Moira Miller at 508-842-1996 or email moira@townisp.com for more information.
